Thanks to the restoration of the château du Haut-Koenigsbourg at
the beginning of the 20th century, students have a
ready-made teaching tool which will enable them to better
understand life in a medieval mountain fortress. The heritage
workshop programme is divided between time spent visiting the
castle and more 'in-depth' and 'hands-on' activities in the on-site
The goal of this workshop is to gain an understanding of the
basics of heraldry. A tour of the château in search of coats of
arms and some 'hands-on' activities will allow students to find out
more about the art behind coats of arms. Students will explore a
number of questions over the course of this workshop, including
what was the purpose of a coat of arms, on what materials were they
depicted, what colours and shapes were used, how did coats of arms
first appear and how did they change over the passage of time.
